We're in this cute little house now, a 1960s bungalow on a corner lot in a decent part of town. It's also an older part of town, which means it has more than a closet-sized yard. YAY! Unfortunately, someone got the great idea that brown is a good neutral color to paint an entire house in. And also got the great idea that textured stucco would make a good wall surface. We will tackle THAT later.
The first project is our oldest daughter's bedroom. Eight year old girl, blah brown bedroom. Messy closet.
Old bed frame gleaned from FreeCycle :o) I strongly considered painting it a bright pink, but opted ultimately to leave it white.
With a coat of Krylon white spray paint, and a few inexpensive brackets, we now have bedside shelves instead of nightstands.
Shelf from FreeCycle - all it needed was a bit of cleaning up :) I backed it with the wallpaper to tie it together with the room.
Sort of lacking in progress photos as I went, but with the closet I papered the walls, painted the hardware with Krylon white spray paint, then (after this photo was taken) I reinstalled the upper shelf.
